Last summer we started “Dinner on the Hill”, which is dinner at our house on Friday nights. It’s not every Friday, but it ends up being three Fridays each month. We make the main dish and the first 6 people to RSVP come and bring sides/wine/sweets.
It’s not my original idea, I read this article on Serious Eats and knew I wanted to do something similar. There were so many people we wanted to get together with, but busy scheduled can make it difficult to find a time when everyone is available. We decided an open invitation to our place on Friday night was the best way to go.
We’ve enjoyed a wide variety of dishes with wonderful sides and desserts brought by others. What a wonderful time we’ve had at each and every dinner!
It’s been wonderful, we’ve been able to enjoy dinner with friend we don’t see often enough and we’ve had the pleasure of meeting new people and making new friends. If you’ve ever wanted to find ways to build community, try hosting a dinner like this each week.
